Each year we team up with the Kerry Camino Walking festival for three days of fun and outdoor festivities in the beautiful county of Kerry. Whether you’re starting out on your Camino journey or preparing for your fifth Camino, this weekend is a great excuse to lace up your boots and get out on the trails. Join the team at IrelandWays.com and meet a bunch of friendly walkers at this wonderful festival.
This annual festival takes place over the may bank holiday weekend from May 3rd to May 5th. Starting in the charming town of Tralee the Kerry Camino route follows the footsteps of Saint Brendan, the Navigator. This trail has been walked by monks and pilgrims on their way to Dingle.
The Kerry Camino is run by a group of enthusiastic locals, keen to recover the history of the trail and celebrate the close links between the region and the Camino de Santiago in Spain. Walkers can collect stamps along the way on the Kerry Camino log book and record their progress. Once you finish the walk you will receive your certificate of completion at St. James’s Church in Dingle.
In 2019 the Kerry Camino Festival takes place from Thursday 3rd May to Sunday 6th May and everybody is welcome! If you haven’t visited this part of Ireland before, this is your chance!
